Matagorda Island

Early this morning 20 Texas Ornithological Society members along with 3 leaders and the boat captain and crew sped through the waves and rain to Matagorda Island for one of the TOS meeting's field trip. We all got very wet before the rain finally stopped as we were driven about the island on an open trailer being pulled by a truck. We did see great birds, particularly after we dried a bit. Highlights for me were a migrating Swallow-tailed Kite, Blackpoll Warbler, and two uncountable but gorgeous Aplomado Falcons. Tomorrow I get to help lead another group out there, hopefully with less or no rain. The TOS meeting here is going great, with field trips to many birdy places and great speakers.
